Liebherr RMGs for Jubail

Liebherr’s RMG cranes will be making their first appearance in the Middle East at Jubail Commercial Port

01 May 2013

Liebherr container cranes will deliver six rail mounted gantry (RMG) cranes to Jubail Commercial Port in Saudi Arabia. The cranes have a span of 43 m and can span 14 containers wide and stack one over six containers high. They have a wide leg and narrow leg outreach of 17.5 m and 16.5 m respectively, giving a total bridge length of 77 m. The cranes have a safe working load of 40 tonnes under a telescopic spreader and the lift height over the rail is 21m.

Recent deliveries of RMGs have included two cranes to the port of Southampton and two for Vladivostok, Russia.

Speaking about the order, Liebherr Container Cranes’ sales and marketing manager Gerry Bunyan said: “Traditionally Liebherr have supplied RMGs to intermodal and port terminals in Ireland, the UK and Europe. This new order represents Liebherr’s first supply of rail mounted gantry cranes to the Middle East, an area where Liebherr has for many years supplied ship to shore container cranes and rubber tyre gantry cranes. This delivery of RMGs represents a further expansion of our product range in the region.”

The cranes have been ordered by Sinopec E&C Middle East Co Ltd on behalf of Sabic.
